    Ok, I tried something... I tried to make up a copy for the hull of the ships and part of the poonton and bump maps it on the water surface; with a very low opacity and a bit of de-saturation.

    The idea was to give it the appearance of the hulls reflecting on the water surface...


    Honestly, I am not sure how well it works, I'll need to take a step back...

    Anyway:

    Looking at it again, I am thinking about keeping the leftmost ship intact but cutting through the reflection of the rightmost one.

    That really looks good. I wish I had thought of it when I did my ship map recently. I think you've nailed it

    It is not too ham fisted? I am still not sure I like it...

    not at all. You have a lot going on with this map (as all maps with a lot of lighting effects do) and you've got it just right

    You have been looking at it too long - if anyone else produced this map you would say it was amazing. I love it, and agree with Simon that it is just perfect. Lighting effects of a flaming boat on water are extremely difficult to do, but I think you achieved it here.

    Definitely one of the best images of this type I've seen...

    Thank you everybody...


    I added some objects in the upper left caves, so that it does not look so empty.
    I also blurred a bit the rightmost ship's reflection, I think it helps...
